The father/husband can contact a caregiving Agency to come in to help. The cost varies from area to area, could be $15 per hour up to $30 per hour. Agencies are licensed, insured, bonded and have workman's comp. The first caregiver could be a perfect fit, or you can request others until you find the right match for your wife.

Another idea is if his wife is on Medicaid. Depending on what programs are available, Medicaid could send in an Aide for a couple of hours a day to help out.

Also have him contact is local Agency on Aging to see what programs they have available. Meals on Wheels would be helpful for they supply a meal a day for elders who are shut-ins.
